Having been brought up in the "Meet people where they are at", school of moral theology, liturgy etc, I was rather pleased when I heard about this 'tweet' from Card Napier. Until I saw it on Fr Z's blog I didn't realise it was also a jab at the Fr Rosica, who seems to be manipulating the English language press coverage of the Synod on behalf of his own particular lobby group.
"Meet people where they are at", strikes me as being the most un-Christian idea ever! Christ keeps saying, 'Come follow me', he calls us out of the place we are at, out of our old life. He gives us hope, more importantly he gives us grace, power, to move away from sin.
"Meet people where they are at", has all the problems of introspection Cardinal Ratzinger spoke about when he wrote about introspective worship leading to introspective ecclesiology.
"Meet people where they are at", tends to mean that the Church or Christians end up by moving in with them. This phrase I am sure is one of the reasons the Church has lost a sense of Mission and is unable to call to conversion and therefore to evangelise effectively.
